        If Fox isn’t forced out Fox will become the next Andy for Cameron. Cameron’s judgement will become a joke.

          compared to Labours list of convicted criminals and thieving I think they still have a way to go !pmsl


          • Anonymous says:

            Not that much difference when you take accounts of MPs as well as Lords. With this lot every thing is up for sale.


          • Is this the Best the State can muster, I thought Cameroon said the SLEAZE was all over. Remember this is what they have been caught doing, What else is going on. It shows you the State of British Fraudster Politico if this is the Best that the CONS OR LIBS CAN manage. Crikey you wouldn’t have to bend over in Whitehall or you would be definately rear ended. HOW MANY MORE RENT BOYS ARE GOING TO COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK?


          • Fiscal Gerrymandering says:

            All this reaffirms is that politicians do not seem to care or at best, pay enough attention, to what may look dodgy on the front page of a newspaper. It also confirms Anonymous is an opportunistic Libore blog troll sitting at a keyboard not a million miles from either BellEndInnelli, Draper or McBride.

            The LibDems have had Laws and Huhne and now the Tories have Fox.

            It’s all a little dis-spiriting and disappointing


          • Liam Fox says:

            I’m saved! I discovered WMD in Libya!

            Omar the rentboy’s massive weapon destroyed my arse!


          • Aunt Mat says:

            In my day we would have called him a manservant.

            Jeeves and Wooster.

            We would have left it at that.


          • The only reason the Labour fraudsters numbered a lot more, is that they are thick as planks and dont really know how to carry out sophisticated arms length transaction Frauds. The labour leader ship. NOW THAT COULD BE A DIFFERENT THING.


          • Osama the Nazarene says:

            Its Foxy Fox, the man who denies that Mr Wetbed had anything to gain from the association.


          • misterned says:

            Anonymous, You mention Lords and MPs, fair enough. How many tory MPs from this or the previous parliament have been imprisoned?

            How many labour? How many tory MPs are still being investigated? How many labour?

            To my knowledge there was only one tory Lord convicted and no tories are currently under investigation. There have been several labour convictions, with several ongoing investigations into labour MPs.

            On the sleaze front, the tories are nowhere near in the same league as labour as yet.


          • Sir Cum Spect says:

            misterned, I think Rage Against the Political Elite makes a valid point in this respect.

    He must resign.

    He takes a personal friend on ministerial trips and allows him to develop personal business deals by using minnisterial contacts. Then it emerges that fox is also a shareholder in werrity’s company?

    How can he possibly continue?

          No Blair just made his best mate Charlie Falconer a life peer, Solicitor General, Lord Chancellor etc etc. Not the same thing at all.


          • Anonymous says:

            Blair’s friend wasn’t lining his pocket was he. If Fox had made his especial friend a especial adviser problems will be less as his especial friend cannot use his influence to sell arms or access. Things would have been monitored by MOD, this is why Fox didn’t do it.


          • lawyers lining each others pockets says:

            Derry Irvine is often a forgotten beneficiary of the Blair years


          • Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur. says:

        Jeez, what is it with Tories and their ‘special’ male friends? If you weren’t sure by now that we’re being run by a cabal of benders with their own pro gay agenda then this latest farce should lift the scales from your eyes.


        • 165
          misterned says:

          Well, Cameron is hardly secretive about his overt support for homosexuals. He made pro-homosexual policies a central part of his keynote conference speech, because he is a conservative (apparently).

          Although I am still waiting for him to actually propose real conservative policies, apart from ‘free schools’, that is.


        • 180
          Cat says:

          That’s the pot calling the kettle black! The last bloody government was crammed packed with benders – right from the very top down.

  5. 7
    Tuscan Tony says:

    A number of Tory politicians stated in public over the weekend he should be permitted to stay, not because the alleged misdemeanour were untrue or irrelevant but because he “carried the Thatcherite flame in Cabinet”. So that makes it all OK then.

      Not much of a right-winger considering what he did to the armed forces!

        misterned says:

        He was bringing the reality of the labour incompetence back to the MOD. You cannot overspend by 30+ Billion pounds without consequence. Labour fucked the MOD. Fox arrived in office to deal with the consequences of that.

    Would the Vice President of Coca Cola take his mate along to Tesco to discuss their business relationship/future business plans?

    There are no get out of jails on this one.

    More to this than meets the eye, the corrupt fucker.


    • 60
      Handycock, No1 Trougher in Parliament says:

      This is not corruption. This is politics, where access to taxpayer’s funds by politicians is given to them by the mandate the public has given to them, by electing them. There is therefore nothing wrong with employing friends and relatives (I employed my wife, even though she did nothing), if you are an MP. It is this mandate to use taxpayer’s funds that has allowed me to do so much good work in Eastern Europe and buy my iPad. Boaz


      • 135
        Norman Triffid says:

        well said Handycock. we can’t all be do-gooders. i managed to keep dazzling young politics graduate, and a brawny Lithuanian carpenter on the ‘payrole’ to keep me entertained in my day and nobody complained.

    What’s with these people, they get away with allsorts that of things that if we crapheads tried would be counted as illegal immoral or using undue influence for pecuniry gain, this sod has also got defence of the nation, it appears trying to make arms deals and pretending to be an advisor to a crown servant, what will happen sweet fa.


  18. 32
    Nemo says:

    It does seem strange that Reynard and Jules go back a long time, when Reynard was shadow health minister, Jules was there involved in health, now Reynard is minister of defence, Jules is there. Obviously I do not know Reynard but it would appear that he has questions to answer and staying silent or not answering questions will let people draw their own conclusions, rightly or wrongly, if Cammers makes the wrong call he will be taken down as well.

    Scotland drops voting age to 4 years old in desperate attempt to encourage nationalism. What will they do when that fails?

    Mind you, would be glad to see the back of them…


    • 73
      It is a truth universally acknowledged..... says:

      Not in our lifetime…….The Scots will NEVER vote for independence when it comes to it for the simple reason that a Scotsmen’s Wallet is dearer to him than independence itself for all the cod-Braveheart politics of Salmon and the SNP for the reason an Independent Scotland would lose the English “Milch Cow” that keeps them in the state subsidised luxury that they’ve grown accustomed to.

      However a referendum for Scottish Independence held solely amongst English Voters would without doubt deliver a 90% YES vote for English independence from Scotland(and Wales)


      • 116
        Eric says:

        “However a referendum for Scottish Independence held solely amongst English Voters would without doubt deliver a 90% YES vote for English independence from Scotland(and Wales)” and 99% if it included separation from Northern Ireland too.

        It’s noticeable there’s no “Team UK” for the Olympics, only “Team GB”.

    Kitchener of Khartoum says:

    Even if this Fox character goes, either walking or being pushed, that still leaves dozens more of these corrupt politicians to walk the walk.

    “New Labour” was appalling, having set the standard early on with the Formula One business, followed by Blunkett, Mandelson, Prescott and the rest, with the denouement being in the insufficently-punished expenses affair.

    The present motley crew, having produced entirely false manifestos, jumped into the pig swill with enthusiasm from the outset. Their pals, and no doubt themselves when they resign or get pushed, are likely to do very nicely out of health, building, defence contracts, the “Olympics” and God knows what else.

    Like it or not, we now live in a banana republic run by nothing much better than a bunch of criminals who, adding insult to injury, we subsidise out of our money.

    Let’s hope these “new procedures” that Fox will now implement put an end to this sort of thing.

      There was a man pretending that he was the Tory leader last week promising homosexual weddings, the end of the green belt and more taxation to build even more useless windmills.


  34. 70
    Tarquin Lloyd-Davies says:

    Fox has made a number of conservative-like comments since the coalition has been in power, so I’m sure Cameron will be desperate to get rid of him. I suspect he’d ideally like to replace him with Caroline Lucas, (if only there was a way) but I guess he’ll probably have to settle for Charles Kennedy.

    Another prime example of why it is necessary to Nationalise the newspaper industry and bring it into line with our State broadcasting authority, then there would be an end to all this tittle-tattle, that just leaves internet blogs to sort out, Facebook and Twitter are OK though, they belong to the people.

    Taxfodder says:

    You have to smile there they are, the apologists, the dear old Tory faithful, as always as far as they are concerned its perfectly ok for their men to fiddle the Taxpayer, misappropriate funds lie cheat and act badly, whats the problem?

    And, when caught out they say Labour were just as bad as if that makes it ok.

    Liam Fox is typical of an establishment circle that thinks the Taxpayer is fair game and they should shut up and think themselves lucky to pay up and shut up.

    Fox is pretty much typical of most politicians, ineffective and on the make!
